Chiropractors do not use drugs or surgery. Instead, they focus on restoring normal function of the body and enhancing the overall health and well being of their patients. A doctor of chiropractic treats patients by identifying, through examination and x-rays, problem areas known as subluxations. Chiropractors then manipulate or adjust the spine to correct the subluxation, alleviate the pain and encourage the body’s natural healing process.
Chiropractic treats the patient, not just the symptoms. By using a holistic approach and examining the lifestyle of the patient, the doctor of chiropractic not only addresses the problem, but the cause as well. Chiropractors are experts in the spinal column, which effects the functions of you entire body. They have extensive education in basic sciences such as anatomy and physiology. They complete a minimum of six years of college level study. And they must pass rigorous exams to become state licensed.
My own education consists of a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, Doctorate of Chiropractic degrees and Certification in Acupuncture. I specialize in the care of Fibromyalgia Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Disc ruptures, migraines and chronic pain.
